It's Zach Day!



Or it was yesterday...

Here is Zach's bday drawing from me! Or at least one of them. I drew his ghoulish stars for his final year thesis! "Blenderstein". Done in prismas and gel pen. His birthday was also the same day as his thesis deadline! He's been hard at work for months getting it done. And let me tell ya, it shows. I couldn't be more proud of him!



And here's a screenshot from the film!
I had the pleasure to voice Sydney, "the victim" of the flick as well as doing the backgrounds and some color work. I'll post some up later when I get the a-okay from Zach first. ;3

Happy Birthday Zach, get tons of rest. You earned it. <3

To-Toro-Ta-Toro~



Bloggerland, why you so dusty? *Brushes off* SO. Hi. I've been having loads of fun lately and my computer has been fixed!!! All I gotta do is get everything back on it! I'm so relieved and excited to start using it again. While I take care of that here's something I've done awhile ago.

I've always wanted to do a tribute for Totoro because its been my favorite Miyazaki movie. I just adore this movie, I love its storytelling, charm and imagination. Its very simple compared to his newer flicks but I love that about it. I can never get tired of watching this movie, if you decide to see it be sure to watch the older 90s dub, not the Dakota Fanning one. The voice acting in the older one can't be beat!

Since I cherish these characters so much I draw them a lot since I'm never pleased with the way I draw them, I'm compiling a bunch of warm up sketches I've done of Totoro and I'll be sure to put them up once I re-install my scanner.

More sooOoOoOoon~
